Torn between Boost, OD and magic
This can be a normal boost, an OD, or a bit of both, kinda like everything you heard about the old Tube Screamers and Boss OD-1, but more reliable and cheaper. This will give a nice thickening low end boost, and get rid of any tinny sound you hear, and break up your amp to clean/blues territory, and the treble control just add magic if you find the sweetspot, i can no longer play any clean amp wiuthout turning this on
Best Pedal Ever
It's a gold klon in a tiny box.
There is nothing better to boost a hot tube amp. Set the amp to just breaking up. Set the tumnus drive to 9 oclock (25%) and volume a little above unity. Now leave it on forever and use your guitar volume to bring it back down to the clean sound and back up to heaven as required. It's like what you already had but in 3D.
If you do a clean amp and get all your sounds from pedals then this is not the best OD. The actual drive sound is thin and mid/high humped. It works super awesome pushing a hot tube amp and kind of lame shaping a clean amp to sound dirty. You pretty much never want to put the drive above 30% or so - there is no profit there.
The pedal ramps up to 18 volts internally and it's extremely dynamic to input. It makes cleans sound better and makes drive sound better. It adds a magic sparkle to the neck pickup.
It has a buffer that can not be turned off (like the klon is clones), but it's an awesome buffer.
I put this as early in my chain as possible, before any other dirt, and just leave it turned on 24/7.
I really can't say enough about this pedal + tube amps. It is the one pedal to rule them all.
Better than a Klon in the highs
Unlike an original gold or silver Klon, or the newer KTR model, the Tumnus has a fuller frequency range. The highs are are cut off like in the original. Otherwise, the Tumnus is equal to the Klon, and you can't tell the difference between the two in the lows and mids.
Best OD/Boost I've Ever Tried
I'm blown away at how good this thing sounds. I primarily use it as a lead boost into the gain channel of my amp (Fender Supersonic 22) and it sounds absolutely incredible. Sounds good on a clean channel also. You won't regret buying this little guy!
Take your tone to a magical land.
The Tumnus from Wampler Pedals has been produced in tribute to one of the most legendary overdrive tones in history. It's the most faithful replication of that tone you will find, now presented for the first time in a mini pedal format and with the quality you would expect from Wampler Pedals. Now you can have the tone and the history. But you can have it without having to kick other pedals off your board.
Tumnus is a versatile addition to any setup, any style. Stack it with another pedal to help push or shape the total amount of gain, use it as a stand alone overdrive, or use it as a slightly dirty boost to push the front end of your amp over the edge. You can even use it as a buffer, because just like the original this pedal is not true bypass. Instead, faithful to the original, this pedal contains a buffered bypass tone legendary in its own right.
